  • A little different than the usual cold-war politics and pro-western operations

    This series has been criticized for using the same plotlines repeatedly, and it is a bit unfair, because the premise is narrow. A 1960's US government covert agency is performing secret missions presumably to benefit our own interests, and those of our allies. That lends itself to repetative stories, although the real essence of the show is the undercover action of its stars. This episode is a little different, in that the plot is not a retread, and the mission itself is conducted in an unusual way. Leonard Nimoy gets to show his acting prowess, and his voice manupulation (two distinctly differing accents). Having recently watched this episode for the first time in 39 years, it is surprisingly fresh, as compared with others on the season 4 dvd, which highlights the similarities among most episodes. Bottom line; the episode has aged better than the series itself.
